BSOD :: Driver Power State Failure On Sleep / Hibernate / Restart Or Shutdown
Dec 24, 2015
Every time I try to put put my laptop to sleep, hibernate, restart it or shutdown, it stalls for about 10 minutes before giving me a Driver Power State Failure.
Having installed "WhoCrashed" and "Windbg", I was able to determine it was related to "ntkrnlmp.exe", "ndis.sys", "raspppoe.sys" and a vpn driver at one point or another. I "believe" I managed to uninstall the offending vpn driver but of course still overall have the same issue.
This appeared to occur while trying to do a windows update last week but I can't be sure. I presume, there is a out of date or corrupt driver but just can't seem to determine which one.
My computer seems to run fine but whenever I shut it down or restart it the screen goes black for about 10 minutes and then I get a blue screen with a driver power state failure. The system files are attached.
Ever since updating to Windows 10 I have periodically had a problem with my computer when I wake it from sleep. The symptoms of this are as follows:
The machine will wake from sleep fine and I'm able to put in my password etc. After 30s to a minute, the machine will give me a BSOD citing Driver_Power_State_Failure (occasionally it has been something else but this is the main culprit.) It then collects data cycling up to 100% but does not reboot automatically. I need to do this manually. When I do so, the machine will reboot normally.On a couple of occasions in the last month, the machine will simply not wake from sleep at all and neither does it respond when I press the power or reset buttons. The only way I can get it to start again is by manually turning off the power supply and then turning it on again. I am not sure if this is related to the BSOD issue or whether it is a separate issue.I have previously had an issue where the machine would appear to wake from sleep but the screen would remain dead and the keyboard was unresponsive (though the num lock light was showing.) I can't recall having this issue recently and am unsure whether this is a separate issue.It normally seems to occur after the machine has been asleep (hybrid sleep) for some time.Of late I've noticed that it often seems to coincide with me opening a new program or file immediately after waking the machine from sleep.
I have tried several things to fix the issue as follows:
I've tried to run Driver Verifier but have never managed to get the machine to start up successfully even with only one driver selected. (In fact I have to manually import the original registry settings to turn off Driver Verifier again in order to get my machine going again.)I have uninstalled and unplugged a USB video capture device but that has made no difference.I have completely uninstalled the drivers for my graphics card and then reinstalled using Microsoft's default drivers. No difference. I've made sure that I am running the latest drivers, have checked Windows update etc.
It's tricky to pin things down to a particular driver without using Driver Verifier and I'm not sure how to decipher the dump files and error logs generated each time this happens.
Ever since I updated to windows 10, my computer automatically installs some Nvidia drivers from their servers. From past experience I know that my computer can get random BSOD's with the wrong Nvidia drivers installed (WinDBG always pointed towards nvdllmkm.sys). So previously when their was an Nvidia update that would cause crashes, I could install a previous version that I knew was working, however if I do this know I'm forced to go to Nvidia builds before the windows 10 update and afterwards windows update just reinstalls the windows 10 version it thinks I need.
So instead of trying to install previous Nvidia versions, I want to go into the root of the problem and find out why I'm getting these random BSOD's (BTW mostly happens when I'm watching a show, so could be temperature related?). Furthermore, I would prefer to stay on windows 10
I recently upgraded my PC with a new solid state drive and to windows 10. I am now experiencing some BSOD (Driver_Power_State_Failure) crashes. I cant say with any certainty but these appear to only be happening once the computer has been in sleep mode for a while. I have attached Zip file ....
Currently I have windows 10 installed, although the problem was persisting even while I was using windows 7. The problems started when I ran out of space on my SSD and tried to bring files over to my other HDD for storage. In the end I threw my hands up and reformatted my Windows 7. And since my SSD was too small to keep everything on last time I decided to install windows on my HDD.
After updating everything and so on my computer, again, decided to BSOD. So I upgraded to windows 10 and eventually it started doing the same thing. I've looked through my device manager and have not located any out of date drivers.
So I did try googling it however I can't seem to open the dump file.I've installed the WinDbg etc from Microsoft Website however, says access is denied when trying to open within the program.So what do I need to do?
I have been having an issue where I am received an intermittent blue screen of death with the message DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE. The issue seems to be occurring when I'm using Adobe Photoshop CC 2015. I have updated my BIOS and graphics card to the most recent version, but this doesn't seem to have remedied the issue.
I am using a HP envy i7 laptop i usually don't switch it off regularly instead i keep it into sleep mode, last night it failed to come back to life from sleeping,it brings blue screen error message that DRIVER POWER STATE FAILURE even after several restarts. How can i fix this without damaging my files coz my laptop is useless for now.
I'm trying to install Tascam US-1641 Audio device to my pc. During installation I am connecting the device and everything just freezing. And error coming again and again. I try to uninstall drivers on safe mode, i also use third party programs for deleting registration files. Everything looks like updated, but the error keeps coming. How can i fix it?
Lastly i even try to reset Windows 10 and nothing changed.
I have updated to Windows 10 when it first came available back in July. Since then, I have been noticing a lot of DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE BSODs. They all seem to happen every day about 5-6 minutes after booting the computer and after waking the computer from hibernation. BlueScreenViewer blames them on atapi.sys and ntoskrnl.exe. Back in Windows 7, the BSOD would occur very occasionally, but not as often as Windows 10.
Here's some background; for the first few days Windows 10 was fine, no problems what so ever but then it I was just listening to music browsing the web, no games or any cpu/ram intensive stuff running and all of a sudden my music stops and then I get taken straight to my bios screen as my PC just restarts out of nowhere. As it is starting up however it shows the black screen with the Windows logo in the middle and the loading circles spinning round, then it shows a black screen and I hear the sound of Windows starting up, wait a few seconds and it says "Configuring updates" or "Configuring Windows" (can't quite remember) Anyway, as it comes back on it I get a little notification saying Windows updates were installed. Then 5 or so mintues later it does it again. Either it's coincidence or it has something to do with it but for a few hours when I was playing GTA V nothing happened for the rest of that time of my PC being loaded.
Again, I was watching an MP4 (I use VLC Player if that has anything to do with it) and it blue screens out of nowhere (I can't remember the exact reason but I've uploaded the crash dumps here [URL] .... ) dunno if the blue screen has anything to do with the random crashing
TL;DR: Windows 10 keeps randomly turning itself off without warning, sometimes going straight to the bios screen and loading back up sometimes just completely off and requires me to turn it back on.
Any ways i keep getting the Kernal Security Check Failure BSOD but don't know what's causing the problem. I tried updating my intel HD grphics driver 4600 because it kept showing "driver has stopped responding and has recovered" from time to time so I thought this was causing the issue of the BSOD, but apparently not -.-
I installed windows 10 about a week ago and all was working fine until I decided to try sleep mode a couple of days ago. I activated sleep mode but noticed after powering off that my PC was turning back on for a few seconds before powering back off in a loop. I didn't think to much of it and powered it off at the wall thinking that would clear any sleep errors. Well I've come back to use it after a couple days and it's still is stuck in a power loop of starting for 3 or 4 seconds before powering back off again in a continuous loop!
No chance to go into the bios, no sign of windows, just an endless power cycle!
